Well you guys, it's official -- Pitchfork thinks the new name for Phoenix's premier outdoor music venue, Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion, is ridiculous. In a post about the upcoming tour of Kings of Leon (ugh) and Band of Horses, staff writer Tom Breihan had this to say about a select few of the tour dates:

I can't believe there's actually a venue named the 1-800-ASK-GARY Amphitheatre, or one called the Ashley Furniture Home Store Pavilion.

We did it! We made Pitchfork lament the new, completely ridiculous name for the former Desert Sky/Cricket Wireless Pavilion! Breihan was so appalled by the venue's new appellation that he actually took the time to express his incredulous bewilderment at the situation. These Pitchfork writers can't be bothered with such trivial matters like odd looking venue names, yet such is the power of the Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion. It's just that bizarre and asinine.

But hey -- at least Phoenix is no Tampa. We've got enough common sense to not name our venue the 1-800-ASK-GARY Amphitheatre. That would be just ridiculous.

When considering excellent home furniture, particularly with regard to fixtures, you are not thinking of small areas with enough area for a table and a chair, and neither are you considering the cheap produced plastic-coated chipwood reception desk and screw-in thighs. Fine home furniture includes wood and carefully equalled false teeth, refined to a wonderful complete but with area for the contemporary devices of the contemporary workplace.

I'd love to attend this for Band of Horses but the venue, the headliner and probably the ticket prices are reasons why I'm thinking no.

Talk to Michael Lacey - maybe Village Voice can afford to buy out the naming rights to the Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion. It sounds like he's got the cash... http://www.desertlivingtoday.c...

If he won't bite, take heart in the knowledge that in a couple of years these bands can put together an entire tour playing only in venues named after Verizon.
